Welcome to Practically Passionate, where we have conversations with those off the beaten path who draw for us, the blueprint for how they got there.

Rank #1: Microsoft With a 2.88 GPA

Podcast cover
Read more
Having a high GPA is seen as the answer to high-paying jobs and future success. However, just because you’re an ‘A’ student it does not mean you will be guaranteed success in the workplace. Similarly, just because you’re a ‘D’ student it does not mean you will be a failure. Bradley is a living example of this testimonial. Not only did Bradley interview with Microsoft, but he accepted a full time offer with the company with a 2.88 GPA.
His story showcases us that in business, success is only accomplished when you’re pursuing your goals with a sense of purpose. The biggest companies in the world are no longer interested in the grades you got in your freshmen year classes. They want life experiences, they want you to tell a story and they want to bring you on to help them change the world. Learn how to do take those initial steps by giving this episode a listen!

Podcast cover

Today’s episode is another focused on the blueprint for pursuing entrepreneurship. In fact, possibly even a more attainable form of entrepreneurship because our guest says it himself, he didn’t try to reinvent the mousetrap, him and his friends just built a better one. Sometimes we get so caught up on the next idea that’s going to totally create a whole new industry, instead of just improving something that already exists.

What you’ll hear about in this episode is how Win Sheridan went to work in an industry for a couple years, learned it, and then decided he could do it better. And they did do it better, they hit just shy of 1 million in revenue in their first year they’ve made more net profit in their first year then uber is yet to do in its entire existence. So here’s Win’s blueprint for building a better mousetrap.

Rank #18: Real Estate Millionaire Chris Craddock

Podcast cover

We’re known as the renter's generation. Thanks to growing up in the midst of the worst economic contraction since the great depression, 2008 has taught us to refrain from any sort of financial commitment. Who can blame us for wanting to rent? We must get outside of this mindset, however, if we are to overcome the poor spending habits of generations prior. Let’s be honest, between the finding of the house, getting financing, and finding and managing tenants, it’s a bit of a mind-fuck (bleeped) so we brought on Chris, who’s goal is to own 13 million in real estate by the time he’s 50, who also leaves us with a great quote, you’re either paying for your landlord's house or your own. Here’s the blueprint for anyone looking to add real estate to their portfolio.

Ski Instructor -> Serial Entrepreneur: The Bruce Thompson Story

Podcast cover
Read more
We’ve all had that one great idea that we think could really be a great business, unfortunately we give into roadblock and get paralysis by over analysis and after leaving the idea on the backburner long enough, it ends up just fading away. On the other hand, there's a group of individuals that are not just able to take the one good idea and turn it into something, but are able to do that with many ideas, over, and over again, maybe it’s because once they figure out how to make one idea work, they somewhat have a blueprint to work with when pursuing the next. Wouldn’t it be great if we could get inside the heads of one of those individuals so maybe we could at least see what that blueprint might look like? Well today we have the entrepreneurial story of one of the biggest real-estate developers on the east coast. But he got his start as a snow ski instructor. From there he identified the opportunity to plan ski trips which evolved into operating busses and a charter airline company. I could go on but I think there’s only one person who can do this story justice, and that’s bruce himself.

Mail Room to Super Bowl, Executive Producer (SNF & Super Bowl), Fred Gaudelli

Podcast cover
Read more
Super Bowl 52 was watched by over 100 million in the US. Many of us remember it from our couch and the following months and months of eagles fans making sure to let everyone know they were among the now 20 NFL teams to ever win the Super Bowl. Our guest remembers it differently, and also got to have possibly the best seat in the house, that’s because he was watching from the control room. That’s because he was the man who ran the whole show that ⅓ of all Americans watched. That means in his position, let's say you’re walking down the street, every third person you walk by, his work, has impacted. How many people have that sort of impact on such a large amount of Americans? Maybe Jeff Bezos and the many packages that arrive at our homes each week? Maybe Tim Cook and the iPhones we all walk around with? Yes, we put him in that category, as the executive producer of the super bowl(the 6th that he’s produced) and Sunday night football for 14 seasons. How does one get a gig like this? That’s what we wanted to ask Fred, in our first episode of Season 3 of practically passionate, Fred, first question here…..
